Attention Red Line Riders: No Pants Day is Tomorrow!
Angelenos with some free time on a Sunday afternoon and the proclivity to sport skivvies in full view from the waist down will be riding the Red Line and roaming the streets tomorrow as part of No Pants Day. This is the second year that L.A. has officially participated in the world-wide event organized by the spontaneous performance group Improv Everywhere. The LA group is using Facebook as their central organization mechanism, and note that the event isn't about titillation (it's no PANTS, not no UNDERPANTS!), but rather an exercise in putting the absurd in an everyday situation. Say the organizers: "We'd like to emphasize the importance of acting casual - like pantslessness is a normal thing - and acting like you do not know any of your fellow riders nor why they are also pantsless."
The riders will be moving from Downtown to Hollywood between 2-6 tomorrow. Luckily in Los Angeles we're in the midst of a run of mid-70s temps; back in New York where the event originated the forecast is calling for a balmy 29 degrees.
If you're witness to or part of the fun tomorrow, be sure to submit pics to our LAist Featured Photos pool on Flickr.
